Sony's Move-Exclusive Datura Dated

Posted by James Newton

Out in May

Time to pick up that Move controller again — Sony's launching Datura on 9th May.

The Move-exclusive action adventure is joint venture between Sony Santa Monica and Polish developer Plastic. It's billed as a "unique, interactive art experience", so don't expect God of War Move, but we're always up for unique and interactive art experiences, especially ones with Move support.

There's a new trailer over at Sony's official Datura page that sets the scene for the horrors ahead.

Sooner than I thought. I'm really excited for this one — I thought Linger in Shadows was brilliant.

What "Move-exclusive?" I distinctly recall a preview video for the game where the guy said you COULD use a DualShock3 if you wanted to, but the game is really designed for the Move. Has this changed?

@Stuffgamer1 Yeah, I heard the same thing from a preview I read on IGN. I don't own a Move, but I really want to try this game! Please doublecheck the facts and let us know if this is truly "Move-exclusive" or just "Move-compatible" Thanks.

This is what I read:
It should be noted that Datura doesn't have to be played with the PlayStation Move. You could very easily use a DualShock controller instead. But it's clear that Datura was designed with PlayStation Move in mind. The Sony representative showing me the game insisted that Move was the preferred method and you could see why. Datura's design encourages you to interact with everything around you, and you get a pseudo-tactile feel from using the PlayStation Move controller to, in turn, control your character's hand on-screen.
